Trabuco Canyon in Heavy Fog

Spruce Trees in Fog - Trabuco Canyon Trail, Orange County, CA

It was rainy and drizzly on and off this Easter Sunday, and since I'm too old to hunt for eggs, I thought I'd hit my favorite local trail, the Trabuco Canyon Trail.

Most people tend to hike when the weather is clear and mild, but not me. There's few things I love more in life than hiking in the rain and fog. So with the heavy cloud cover hanging over the local Santa Ana Mountains, I knew I'd be able to hike up into the clouds to get some great "forest in the fog" shots.

I had the trail all to myself and the fog was superb. Remember, all the following shots were taken in sunny southern California. I don't know about you, but had I seen these pictures without knowing where they were taken, I never would have guessed Orange County as the location.

Lots of similar shots here, but I loved them all. I played with the white balance quite a bit on some of these to get some cooler blue tones. I'm really happy with how these turned out. I can't wait to see how they look on Metallic Paper.
